Isolation of Mucor circinelloides from a case of ulcerative mycosis of platypus (Ornithorhynchus anatinus), and a comparison of the response of Mucor circinelloides and Mucor amphibiorum to different culture temperatures



Isolation of Mucor circinelloides from a case of ulcerative mycosis of platypus (Ornithorhynchus anatinus), and a comparison of the response of Mucor circinelloides and Mucor amphibiorum to different culture temperatures



Medical Mycology 37(3): 201-206



M. circinelloides was isolated from a platypus (O. anatinus) captured in Tasmania, Australia, that was suffering from ulcerative mycosis. On horse blood agar at 20, 25 and 30 degrees C, the fungus formed sphaerule-like bodies, a morphology previously associated with M. amphibiorum, the species thought to be responsible for the disease in platypus. A biopsy taken from the ulcer was fixed, cut and stained.
